NOTHING HAS CHANGED

The United States of America was founded on the principle of liberty and justice for all.

Back in the day, the settlers arrived on new land, fleeing persecution in the “olde country”.

They wanted freedom, they wanted equality, they wanted justice.

It’s so ironic to me that none of that has been achieved in spite of claiming that it has. The historical events depicted on the accompanying video show how in 100 years, fear has been a mainstay in America life.

Take a look … the facts don’t lie.

“The US government has a history of targeting vulnerable groups”

I invite you to watch this video and hope that you find that this is something to think about.

In my humble opinion, this is nothing to be proud of.

T’WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Yes, what can I say?

This will be to warmest in almost 100 years.

…. and, yes, the A/C has clicked on.

Weather forecast:

a high of 83 degrees and a low of 70 degrees.

Wish I could ship this weather to my dear friends and followers in areas where the snow and cold is already there.

We won’t be having a “White Christmas” this year.

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
